My friend, Anna, welcomed a sweet baby boy into her family on Leap Day. Hayden was born a few weeks early, but got to come home after only a couple of extra days in the NICU. He is such a blessing, and so adorable!
Anna asked me to help design his nursery, so I decided to do my very first mood board!
I drew inspiration from a curtain that Anna bought from Target and the large, framed vintage alphabet poster she already has hanging in his room.
The fun colors in the curtain and poster immediately reminded me of the striped, polkadot and argyle fabric from Hobby Lobby and I thought it would be so fun to use it to create a pennant banner with his name on it. Before seeing my mood board, Anna emailed me the same suggestion! Great minds think alike!!
I included the white dresser because Anna said she bought a white bedroom set from her neighbor for $75! What a deal!
I also included the silhouette art from Adam’s room, since Hayden is a farm boy as well.
The vintage fan and lantern are right up Anna’s alley – her mom owned an antique store and Anna likes to decorate with antique and vintage items.
And I think incorporating some more vintage metal items would be really cute, too. Maybe Hayden’s books could go in an old tool tote?
A vintage egg basket or vintage wagon could help corral toys as Hayden gets bigger. (This is an old picture of my china cabinet.)
And how about a big barn wood H for Hayden, like this “A” I made last spring? I think it would be adorable hanging on the wall!
But now, I’ve gotten word that she’s bought a different valance for the room. Guess I get to design another nursery!
**By the way, I designed that mood board using Creative Memories Storybook Creator Plus. It was VERY easy! You can buy it from me, here. **
